CLSC Aupaluk-Qallisarvik

In September, 2023, the Art for Healing Foundation travelled to Aupaluk, Nunavik, on Quebec’s Ungava Bay, to install 14 Indigenous works of art by Indigenous artists at the newly opened CLSC Aupaluk-Qallivirak.

The installation was immensely well received by the patients, staff and visitors of the CLSC, as well as the residents of this town of 233 people. In addition to the local residents, the CLSC serves several of the surrounding 14 villages that Nunavik is comprised of.

Because of the success of the project, the Art for Healing Foundation has been invited to complete two additional projects, this time at the Kuujjuaq Hospital and at the Kuujjuaq Transit House. The Transit House is where Indigenous people stay while travelling from the more northern villages, en route to Montreal, or elsewhere, to receive medical care unavailable to them in the far north.

The Art for Healing Foundation is seeking donations of Indigenous artwork by Indigenous artists for these projects.

Proposals should include an image of the work, the title, year produced, dimensions, medium and approximate value and forwarded by email to: earlpinchuk@artforhealingfoundation.org

We look forward to making both projects as equally successful as CLSC Aupaluk-Qallivirak and thank everyone for considering this request.
